Oil Rush Tour

Northwestern Pennsylvania -- June 5th - 7th, 2020

Join us for a weekend tour of the beginning of the American Oil Industry in beautiful northwestern Pennsylvania. We will visit Titusville where Drake's well is preserved along with an incredible museum to the early oil industry.

We will then visit the ghost town of Pithole; America's first real "boomtown" now returned to a wild place. Lastly, we’ll visit Oil City where the oil arrived on its way to Pittsburgh.

Riding through some of the prettiest Pennsylvania countryside, you will come away with a better understanding of America's entry into the Industrial Age and meet the eccentric personalities that drove the early days of the industry and its abuses that would bring down the greatest corporate empire ever conceived.
